Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Song: Molina- Magnolia Electric Company update- Dead, but not GD Dead

I was just discovering what a talented person Jason Molina was when he died just a year or so later 3/2013. A few of the Magnolia Electric Company songs were just fantastic- big Neal Young quality songs. I hope Neal sees fit to play one someday to honor Jason. Anyway the former bandmates of the departed appear to have put together a 4 date tour and done themselves proud by the music and the tribute to Jason as well. Hammer down covered by the Avett Bros. is nice on youtube if you're interested. Here's the most recent show for those interested.

I saw him play way back when he was Songs: Ohia. Simple songs, but delivered with style. As you say, Neil Young-ish in the best possible way. Sad to lose him so young.
